Stockport Council has announced that there will soon be another opportunity to apply to the Stockport Local Fund, the new community fund which is supporting great ideas that make a difference to neighbourhoods.
A series of workshops will take place over the next few weeks where you can get an overview of the fund. You’ll find out when the fund opens, how to apply and where to get advice and support. You’ll also find out what type of projects we’re looking for. No advance booking is required – just turn up on the day.

Councillor Elise Wilson, Stockport Council’s Executive Member for Reform and Governance, said:
“If you weren’t ready to apply or weren’t successful last time there is another opportunity to apply to the Stockport Local Fund coming soon. To make sure you don’t miss out, now’s the time to start developing your great idea.
“In particular we will be looking for applications that demonstrate collaboration, so why not consider working in partnership with other groups, friends or neighbours in your community? I’d encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to join together and make our neighbourhoods even better places to live in. Come along to one of our workshops to find out how we can help you bring your idea to life.”
